Dr. Berndtson has a strong reputation for helping  restore healthy function where usual medical care has failed to do so. What makes this possible? It’s not that he’s smarter or works harder than his colleagues – it’s that he approaches his problem solving task from a systems perspective.

This approach is known either as systems medicine or functional medicine by those who practice it.  Park Ridge MultiMed is among a small percentage of medical practices nationwide that can apply advanced systems medicine skills to the care of chronic illness. You can access this hard-to-find expertise in a friendly and relaxing environment located in the heart of Park Ridge’s historic Uptown district. To learn more, visit Location & Hours.

Since our health system stubbornly defies common sense when it comes to a personalized, systems medicine approach to chronic illness, Dr. Berndtson must operate out-of-network with private health insurance networks. Health insurance contracts are stacked against the kind of care Dr. Berndtson provides. He took an oath to serve patients, not insurance contracts.

A majority of our patients experience moderate to major improvement over time. Even when the results are not as good as hoped, our patients are routinely satisfied with the quality of our effort. To learn more about the conditions we handle best, visit What We Treat. There you’ll find a range of educational resources.

We want to help you learn which skills and methods deserve a place in your self-care toolkit going forward. We want to equip you with tools you can use to maintain your health so you can be reasonably less dependent on a costly health care system that’s in the midst of an identity crisis.
